Currently editing the photos I took today of miss Martine. I should be watching the back of my eyelids because of an early day at work tomorrow, but I couldn’t really help it—she’s too beautiful! Don’t you agree?
Martine is a totally inspiring individual and I’m so glad I got the chance to spend a few moments with her. She’s the sister of one of my dear friends, and by default I love their entire gene pool. We enjoyed a stroll in the park and some coffee at her favorite coffee shop in Cole Valley. The photos were a nice tribute to how beautiful San Francisco is—thankfully the typical grey summer weather here made for wonderful lighting on her lovely face. Anyhow, Martine recently removed herself from an unhappy work situation and has now begun her “retirement”: also known as starting her own business as a life coach.
After chatting with her a bit about starting businesses, our conversation flowed into chatting about constantly working and falling into the patterns of the 9-5. She gave me a small piece of advice that will stick with me when I choose to open my business: Martine, once a week, likes to make sure she’s treating herself. So, she asks herself, what can I do this week that I would have been able to with my old work schedule? This past week was treating herself and a friend to a movie at 9:00am, coffee in hand. Brilliant!
Anyhow, if you’re in San Francisco and are wanting to talk to someone who can give you a few pointers and a nudge in the right direction: contact Martine at martineholston.com
